Lord Mayor Meeting

The FSB team were delighted to meet with the Lord Mayor of London, Rt Hon Dr Andrew Parmley, in his private office at the Mansion House in May, where the impact of Brexit on small businesses on the city and the need for investment in skills for micro and small businesses were discussed. 

The Lord Mayor is in post for a one year period and since 1215, every newly-elected lord mayor has travelled through the City of London to Westminster to swear loyalty to the Crown.

People come from all over the world to watch this classic piece of British pageantry, and this year the Lord Mayor was especially pleased that Blackpool – his adopted home town – took part. 

Keen readers of Regional Voice will know that the Lord Mayor and the FSB share mutual love for Blackpool with the seaside resort being the FSB’s spiritual home and our head office base.
